Kirksey Moves Up to ARCHICAD 7.0
High-growth Firm Builds Diverse Practice Around Graphisoft Technology
Boston, MA -- (July 31, 2001) -- Houston-based architectural firm Kirksey, ranked 8th on Zweig White's Hot Firm 2000 list among firms focused solely on architecture, today announced that it has expanded its number of ARCHICAD seats to 75 and upgraded to Graphisoft's latest version - ARCHICAD 7.0.
Based on the success of their migration to ARCHICAD 6.0 in 1999, Kirksey continues to build its diverse practice, encompassing ten different specialty teams and close to 120 employees, around the innovation and customization they receive from ARCHICAD.
"We've had an internal review board evaluating Web collaboration for some time and ARCHICAD 7.0's ProjectXchange capabilities hold a tremendous amount of promise for us. That, combined with feature improvements and Graphisoft's leadership in the adoption of the CAD standards that will define the future of the industry like the IAI's IFC and BLIS initiatives, means that we're practicing on the forefront of AEC CAD technology," said David Larrew, director of Architectural Technology for Kirksey.
Kirksey also benefits from a close association with Graphisoft partner Jerry Burk, president of CADeshack, who represents Graphisoft in Houston, Chicago and Louisiana.
"Kirksey's continued growth and success speaks volumes about the benefits of an ARCHICAD-based practice for larger firms," states Chris Barron, AIA, vice president of Architecture for Graphisoft. "We expect that they'll benefit even more from a custom 'Kirksey-version' of ARCHICAD that's now in the works."
